In today’s modern world, the technological revolution has brought about the reinvention of the way we live and understand things as well as our perspective on the world around us. What was once thought to be impossible is no longer unreachable.
What is still the same though is the debilitating effect which pain has on our daily lives. Today, many of us are gravely affected by pain for a period of time at least a few times during our lifetime. Statistics from the Institute of Medicine say that more than 100 million people suffer under the effects of severe or acute pain only in the US with more than 50 million suffering from different forms of arthritis.
Some would even go as far as to say that chronic pain is the indiscriminate torturer which is affecting many hundreds of millions of people worldwide, every year. It is highly probable that either you or someone that you know or love, has suffered some form of acute or chronic pain over the past year. What is concerning is that about 20% of chronic pain cases are not successfully treated by over the counter medication, leaving an astounding number of people in pain and in a desperate search for a cure to alleviate their pain. Faced with these statistics, it is not surprising that following the discovery and introduction of CBD on the market, this natural, non-hallucinogenic and non-addictive hemp product with anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect has been received with opened arms by the population, amassing a massive success.
CBD short for cannabinoid is an extract obtained from hemp, which is closely related to the controversial cannabis plant. CBD has been highly appreciated since it contains all the amazing benefits of the cannabis without causing any hallucinogenic effects and without having any addictive effects. CBD products are currently legal and available in tens of countries around the world, many of which in the US. In many of these states, while CBD has been declared as legal, marijuana use remains illegal.
CBD products with less than 3% THC are also perfectly legal in the US as well as in 3 dozen other countries all around the world.
